LexisNexis® 40 UNDER 40 2022 律商聯訊「40位40歲以下精英」榜單

Susan believes that a lawyer should be able to practice legal knowledge in a real business context. As such, prior to her legal practice, Susan worked in a top-tier multinational company secretarial firm providing services to over 40% of the Fortune Global 500 companies.

With Susan’s enthusiasm in the corporate and commercial world, she joined Fairbairn Catley Low & Kong and subsequently Miao & Co. to further her career as a corporate lawyer. During Susan’s time in the private sector, she advised on numerous equity and debt capital market transactions. She was also heavily involved in over 15 listing cases on Main Board and GEM Board for over four years. In 2020, Susan’s hunger to learn and practice in the commercial world takes her to Alibaba Group. Here, she oversees legal compliance matters for 20 countries, including but not limited to countries in the Asia Pacific and Europe.

Outside of Alibaba, Susan was the President of Junior Chamber International Bauhinia in 2021. During her year of presidency, she successfully lined up 73 strategic partners (including government departments, business sectors and NGOs) and 17 overseas chapters, and she also raised HK480,000 for operations. The achievement was reported in over 62 newspaper articles, radio news and television news. Her extraordinary management philosophy has led her to win the “Most Outstanding President” and “Most Outstanding Local Organization” in the National Convention of Junior Chamber International (JCI) Hong Kong.

Susan認為,律師應該能夠在真實的商業環境中實踐法律知識。因此,在從事法律工作之前,Susan 曾在一家頂級跨國公司秘書事務所工作,為超過 40% 的《財富》世界 500 強公司提供服務。

憑藉 Susan 對企業和商業領域的熱情,她加入了 Fairbairn Catley Low & Kong 和隨後的 Miao & Co.,以進一步發展她作為公司律師的職業生涯。在 Susan 在私營部門工作期間,她為眾多股權和債務資本市場交易提供諮詢。四年多來,她還積極參與了超過 15 宗主板和創業板上市案件。 2020 年,Susan 對商業世界的學習和實踐的渴望將她帶到了阿里巴巴集團。在這裡,她負責監督 20 個國家/地區的法律合規事務,包括但不限於亞太地區和歐洲國家。

在阿里巴巴之外,蘇珊於2021年出任國際紫荊青年商會會長。在任期間,她成功對接了73個戰略合作夥伴(包括政府部門、商界和非政府組織)和17個海外分會,還籌得了48萬港幣用於運營。超過 62 篇報紙文章、廣播新聞和電視新聞報導了這一成就。她非凡的管理理念使她在香港國際青年商會(JCI)全國大會上獲得“最傑出會長”和“最傑出本地組織”。
